The Top Ten

1
I'm Your Captain
It is very hard for me to pick the best Grand Funk song as I have so many, however I'm Your Captain/Closer To Home hits me in so many different ways, musically, emotionally, etc. That I pick it number 1. That band was awesome & were extremely underrated. Still listen to all of their albums frequently.
This is absolutely epic in every possible way a song can be. IT starts quiet, builds strong, has a memorable lull, ends with one of the best possible fades in music. Breathtaking!
One of the "Greatest" Rock Bands Ever...

2Inside Looking Out
I remember walking into our local YMCA in the day and hearing this coming of the PA system. Somebody had it on as background music whilst doing some repair work. I was about 14 years of age and was transfixed by the power of the song. I think this was the moment I fell in love with 'Rock ' Music. It still has that effect on me now. I had never heard of this band, as they were'nt played a lotmon the UK radio stations, and I'd have to agree that they are still a very underrated band.
My favorite band. Got turned on to them around 1969. Haven"t stopped rocking" with them since. Definitely, I believe, the best band ever. You"re not gonna hear or see a better group of MUSICIANS.
My all time favorite since I bought the Paranoid album the day it was released!

Wonderful song, great for listening, can't get it out of my head

20Out to Get You

21I Come Tumblin'
The BEST Rock song ever to me. Mark, Don and Mel play withsuch a grooving heavy passion. Don screaming vin the background during Mel's solo makes me go crazy with him.I don't care what anyone says or how they feel about it. Mark's voice and the harmonies are unsurpassed. "Upsetter played before it is very groovy indeed.
I believe this song is their hardest, and most technically difficult of anything they ever did. It just completely rocks from beginning to end. It also is very funky, for a hard rock song. I wish they had included it in their set longer. I heard them play it live at Olympia Stadium in Detroit shortly before E Pluribus Funk was released. Amazing.
Best ' HARD ROCK song ever! Needs "Upsetter" to be played before it (like on the LP) so the anticipation builds just right when you hear the first sustained note in the energy barrage!

25The Railroad
Just a perfect song. Mark's acappella intro vocals sets this song over the top alone. Plays on words, great guitar solo, and mark goes so high at the end of the song "workin for the railroad yaeah. Nothing but greatness.

29Loneliness
Ranks right up there with Closer to home, as one of the top ten songs in rock history. This is a message tune for those who will listen. The build up with the orchestra, simply outstanding!
